When a filesystem encryption key is removed, we need all files which had
been "unlocked" (had ->i_crypt_info set up) with it to appear "locked"
again.  This is most easily done by evicting the inodes.  This can
currently be done using 'echo 2 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches'; however,
that is overkill and not usable by non-root users.  In preparation for
allowing fs/crypto/ to evict just the needed inodes, export
dispose_list() to modules.  For clarity also rename it to
evict_inode_list().
